Renowned property investment and developers, Lakeside Village CEO, Dr. Ben Yartey and brand ambassador Joseph “KingKong Agbeko”, were among high profile dignitaries that rallied support for the Asamoah Gyan Book Launch in Accra on Saturday.
The duo supported the former Black Stars captain by participating in the auction of the first copies of the book which racked up over 340,000cedis.
And to the CEO of Lakeside Village, the gesture was to support Gyan for his immense contribution to football development in Ghana and beyond. He was the only real estate developer to support the event.
Likewise, the former IBF Bantamweight champion Agbeko left the ceremony as the only sports personality to support the football legend.
“To say Asamoah Gyan has contributed his quota to football in Ghana and beyond is an understatement, he is a real legend and needs to be celebrated,” Dr Yartey said.
“The amount Lakeside village injected, although huge, is our contribution to say Ayeeko for his contribution to the sport that brings us all together.”
Lakeside Village is noted for supporting sports development programmes in the country.
